    trying to get through all the crappy little jobs that i keep putting off, like her seatbelt not working and her seat keeps sliding forward. the latest is the passenger door doesn't open from the outside everytime. i remember someone asking the question ages ago about being able to adjust the slack in the door cable but i can't find it when i search. sooooo
    anyone any idea whether it can be adjusted and more importantly how?
    cheers

    yes - it aint a cable, but a rod - and it is well covered in the Rave manual. You do need hands of a 5 yr old to do it tho:rolleyes:

    i wouln't say that, just a little bit fiddly, and the destructions i got were really good, took about an hour each side, but be sure you take photo's of how it goes back together,
    and a few piece's of coloured tape will help you;) one colour for the top rod an a different colour for the bottom, it helped me.

    i've got 3 rave manuals, can i find them? can i bollix.
    will have another look for em after.
    don't think it's the spring as sometimes it will work. it feels like the rod/cable has stretched a bit stopping the lock from operating fully

    many thanks
